The timber framed house boasts a dramatic monopitch roof with clerestorey windows and a smaller monopitch to the East Facing side of the property. As you walk up to the large North facing deck you have large stacking and sliding doors that open from the Main bedroom, the central living area and the second bedroom to the east.
In the living area there will be a central fire place to one side and to the back (South Side) will be an open plan kitchen and dining area which leads out to a smaller back porched area. Just off from the kitchen is a large scullery and pantry area which has access into the double garage. To this side of the house is the main bedroom with large built-in cupboards and an en-suite with a walk-in shower and skylight to bring in filtered light.
On the East portion of the house are two bedrooms and their own bathroom which will also be a guest bathroom for entertained guests. The large windows and doors ensure that there is adequate sunlight into the spaces for comfortable living.
The house also has another private wing just off the double garage which has a Guest Cottage for renting or Airbnb purposes. On the North side is a well landscaped Porch with sliding doors that lead into the open plan living area. To the back of the living area is a bedroom with built in cupboards and spacious bathroom. The cottage has it's own private back garden which has been partially paved and landscaped.
To the front of the house is a water-wise garden with a combination of a paved driveway and pebbled area. Bird baths and feeders have been strategically placed to attract the stunning birdlife that can be found along the garden route.
Gas geysers and stoves were installed aswell as rainwater tanks for irrigation and reuse around the house. A combination of double glazing and Low-E was used for the large amounts of glazed area aswell as use of large roof overhangs to ensure that interior spaces are shaded during hot summer months.
